A Waterboro man has been accused of selling a customer’s car that was in his auto repair shop for repairs.

Scott Depeter, 43, was arrested Friday after an investigation by York County Deputy Shawn Sanborn into a complaint from an elderly man who had taken his 1999 Ford Mustang to Airport Autobody in Waterboro for repairs to a window. The man never got his car back and was billed $2,000 for repair work. Sanborn discovered the car had been sold by Depeter with a forged bill of sale and without registration, according to police. The new owner sold it again to a Wakefield, New Hampshire, resident. The car has been recovered and returned to the original owner.

Depeter, who was arrested in January for theft by deception in an alleged Craigslist scam, was again charged with theft by deception and aggravated forgery. He is being held on $25,000 bail at the York County Jail. His arraignment is scheduled for Monday at York County Superior Court in Alfred.
